Holy covert spooks Batman. OK here’s the thing Ministry of Defence people, it is highly unlikely that compensation cheats joined the forces to rip you off. They are doing quite nicely back home without having to dodge bullets in Iraq and Afganistan first, thank you very much. But it has been revealed that the British MoD are using their undercover spying powers to weed out would-be injured soldier fraudsters  by any means possible, including video surveillence, wire tapping and scanning phone records. How the hell do you fake a friggin war injury?  Hmm and anyone claiming compo better be friggin careful, you are being watched! Over 200 injured soldiers have received threatening letters warning them they could possibly be under surveillance. Nothing like knowing they care! It seems the MoD are using the controversial Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), which was originally set up to help the police and MI5 monitor terrorists in the UK, to allow them to spy. Hmm, if that had paid this much attention to Osama Bin Laden maybe they would have…ah never mind!
